The Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court at London’s most beautiful open-air venue Somerset House will once again hold Film4 Summer Screen. A highlight of the city’s summer film calendar, the series features a range of diverse films, all showing on a state-of-the-art screen with full surround sound.
Public premieres await for Gemma Bovery starring Gemma Arterton and Warner Bros remake of The Man from U.N.C.L.E starring Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer and Alicia Vikander.
Withnail and I, Roman Holiday, Do The Right Thing, The Silence of the Lambs and True Romance also make the line-up this year along with ‘Behind the Screen’ – a diverse and entertaining programme of talks, workshops and family events that bring the world of cinema to the masses.
After the success of its 10th anniversary celebrations last year, Film4 are once again giving the public a chance to vote for a film – this time for cinema’s greatest movie musicals. Voting is now open.
As the sun sets, live DJs will create a soundtrack inspired by the upcoming film as cinema-goers can chill out in the courtyard with picnics and drinks. Selected screenings will also be specially introduced by the film’s stars and directors.
Back for a third year, Summer Screen Prints: the film poster exhibition curated with Print Club London, presents a series of contemporary screen-printed posters, inspired by this seasons films. You can visit the exhibition before the film begins and buy the limited-edition prints for £50 each.
